The art lessons at the Saatchi gallery have become legendary. Highlighted, is the stunning location at one of the world’s top art galleries and the recognition given by the prestigious museum Centro das Artes – Casa das Mudas by exhibiting our show about the UNESCO world heritage landscapes of Madeira. The student’s work was considered museum quality!
Within easy reach from Belgravia, Pimlico and Kensington.
The classes tend to be full, so book as soon as possible!

“Nelson is quite different from other teachers. Not only he is knowledgeable but he is also very gentle on his way of teaching and we don’t feel intimated about art/drawing. For beginners it will a great experience and for artists he will guide you on further exploration.”   Christine Nguyen, rating 5/5

PAINTING WITH OILS – CLASSICAL 17th CENTURY SPANISH TECHNIQUES.
This course will show you how to use non-yellowing Hot Salt Organic Oil, similar to the methods of Velázquez, Ribera and Zurbarán. This technique is much more archival than conventional modern oil paints. The paint will also be fast drying and non-yellowing. You will also learn how to make pastel tints that look cleaner, more luminous and less chalky than colours mixed with white.
